I've never heard anyone mention an outside wedding coordinator, would not be a bad idea at all if you want all your details just right, personally I've barely been getting any response from the coordinators about my questions about whether they can order the bouquet I want, and decorating the gazebo/pergola, etc. I'm getting annoyed as my wedding is in 3 weeks!
Lastly, the one question I can answer you with 100% certainty, yes, you can bring an outside photographer and they don't charge you a thing.
Now as for confirming the first two questions, I suggest you call the coordinators, that way you get an answer right away (I called them to confirm my wedding day and time right before I booked since they didn't answer my emails fast enough). Once you've talked to them on the phone, email them to have a confirmation in writing.

My wedding is in November and I will be having my reception at the Seaside Grill. Sooo again, ask!!!
As far as the WC, they have no problem with you bringing someone as long as you count them as your "guest". They will not charge extra just a normal guest rate. I strongly suggest you bring someone with you since we all know how Sandra and Landy work. I am also looking for someone.
And yes, you can bring a photog as your "guest" as well.

As for having trouble confirming day and time, just call them! It's so much easier! That's what I did. My emails had asked something like "do you have April 1st at approx 4pm?" and they replied "yes we have April 1st at 5pm" and I was a bit disappointed that 4pm wasn't available, but when I called I found out it was, they were just suggesting 5pm would be better because it's closer to sunset (whereas I personally thought it was worse because not enough time for photos). They could have answered something like "yes, we have 4pm or 5pm available" to be clear, but no, they just said 5pm. All this to say that calling is definitely better, you get an answer right away, and you don't have to worry about availability changing between emails.

You don't need flight information. I booked my wedding at the end of January for November 28 and have yet to buy my flight!! Just explain to Sandra and it should be okay. Don't be surprised if they ask you to reserve your room though. I did it a week after I booked my time slot.
Oh, and congrats on choosing Dreams Tulum. You are going to LOVE it!! It is so beatiful, relaxed, and most importantly very flexible when it comes to the wedding planning.
